Manchester United reportedly plan to bring Odion Ighalo to Old Trafford on a permanent basis in a £15m deal.

Manchester United are reportedly set to sign Odion Ighalo on a permanent deal this summer.

The 30-year-old has impressed for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side since his arrival from Shanghai Shenhua, registering four goals in his first eight appearances.

Ighalo joined the Red Devils on a six-month loan from the Chinese outfit in January, but United are said to be making plans to bring the former Watford man to Old Trafford on a permanent basis.

According to the Daily Mail, Ighalo's loan deal is set to expire in May, and his parent club Shanghai have set a £15m price tag on the striker.

The report also claims that United may have to negotiate an extension for the Nigeria international's loan should the Premier League run until June amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Ighalo chalked up 39 goals in 99 appearances for Watford between 2014 and 2017.
